Pets and Animal Health with Herbalist Amanda Furbee

The big dreamy eyes, perked up ears, and undeniable love we receive from our animals simply does not compare to any other. As pet owners, we want our animals to have the best quality of life, food, and care around. Whether it's your favorite shaggy tail dog, Berkeley James (pictured above) or the slow moving reptilian Sally the Salamander, you want to know the best options for your pet's health. As our culture begins to re-educate ourselves on how what we put in our bodies truly affects us, we are also re-evaluating what we feed our pets. They have health care needs that are both biophysical and emotional and it's our responsibility to narrow down what is going on for them and do our best to help. I am not an expert in pets, but I do know that there are lots of herbs that are safe and effective for pets. You want to make sure you consult with your Veterinary before treating your animal on your own. It’s often hard to figure out what may be wrong with our 4-legged companions.
